Civil War Token

10 Sep 2016

There are alot of scratches on the holder. Basically because I looked at it alot. There is more red than brown. If you could hold it you would see it. If I put too much light on it you would not see the color this good. Not one of my better shots. People used these to exchange for goods and services. During a terrible war. For a good reason!



Level 5

Was thinking about buying a civil war token. I would end up buying a bunch and joining the civil war token society club. I really like them. Might pick one up some day.

I had a friend who hand had one raw. Thanks for the info on the coin.

I really need to get myself a civil war token, they're really cool. I especially like that they say army and navy on the coin

One of the most important areas of American numismatics, historically speaking. I love the Civil War tokens. Yours is beautiful, nice grade too!!

Beautiful token Mike! I have a few Civil War Indian cents, but nothing as pretty as this. One of my pet peeves...scratches on the coin holder : ) I wish they were scratch resistant.

Great coin. I love Civil War era coins. So much history it lived through. Thanks Mike
